I am very impressed with the heaviness of the dartboard, about 12 pounds. It is heavy duty, not thin and flimsy being, 1 1/2 inches thick. The box gives you directions to hang it correctly, plus the instruction sheet tells you 3 different games you can play. I am very happy that is comes with 6 darts and 4 different designs of flights. The needles are nice and sharp! The darts glide easily and pull out of the dartboard without any problems.
